Update November 1, 2013:
A great turnout and fun evening!
The QJBC 4th annual Room of Horrors held October 29, 2013 attracted a record number of participants. 16 multidisciplinary teams competed in a challenge to identify safety errors and risks in an actor supported patient scenario presented in the Simulation Lab. Lively discussion (sustained with Halloween treats) followed as each team documented their MANY findings and solved a tough CPSI word puzzle.
Scores are being tabulated now and winners will be notified within the next few weeks. The top three teams will receive (individual) prizes and be invited to a celebration lunch. Answers will be posted; stay tuned for results!
